We had our first neurodivergent book club on Saturday, and one of the things we talked about was the complexity of labels. On the one hand, they serve as a tool to get information, support and connect with others, but it can also serve to separate us into "us and them" if we're not careful. 

In this episode:

  • Why I avoided using the terms gifted and twice exceptional for so long, and why it's helped to finally use them. 
  • Just because we can get by without a label, doesn't mean it wouldn't be helpful. 
  • Being in both parent and neurodivergent adult spaces, parents are hesitant to label kids with disabilities, but not giftedness, while adults wish they'd gotten disability diagnoses sooner and often dislike the gifted label.
